Subject: Are'nt you the guy who poked me in the eye?
The film opens up with a (bad) overture of 'The Blue Danube" (guess you have to find stock music when you can get it) and then goes into great detail of how we see. Although not as strange as the "How The Ear Functions" it still has that over zealous pointer, and some great special effects.
